Get Over It Movie Review

Get Over It Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 2 Star Rating)

If youre looking for some fresh, fun teen romance - dont see Get Over It. If it wasnt for Colin Hanks I would have gotten up and left by the time the dog started humping the rubber plant.

If you're looking for some fresh, fun teen romance - don't see this movie. However, if you just want a few funny moments and a lot of been-there/done-that plot, Get Over It is for you. Or, if you simply love Colin Hanks(who doesn't?) it's also worth the ticket price.

Get Over It features some of the best talent in young Hollywood - Kirsten Dunst, Mila Kunis (That 70s Show) and the best kept secret: Colin Hanks. Unfortunately, even great creative talent like these guys can't pull off a script that borrows from every teen movie in the last 5 years.

Get Over It takes the play idea from Whatever it Takes, the vulgar comedy of American Pie and the romantic triangles of every teen movie Freddie Prinze has ever done. And I bet if Freddie hadn't given up teen films, they'd have cast him instead of Ben Foster.

The only bright part of this film is Colin Hanks' impressive and hilarious performance as Felix - the overprotective older brother of Kirsten Dunst's character, Kelly. Hanks is a gifted actor who steals every scene he is in. In fact the only way the audience can get through the melodramatic and irritating play finale is because the camera keeps cutting to Hanks. Even the slightest facial expression from him is genuinely funny.

Ben Foster as the lead was a bad cast. He doesn't have enough charisma to attract a fly let alone a hottie like Kirsten Dunst. The part about Striker (Shane West) being in a boy band was funny, but why did he have to have an accent? West wasn't very good at it and one minute he sounded English, the next Irish and sometimes even Australian - pick a dialect already!

Martin Short plays the overdramatic and annoying drama teacher and he does a good job as well - but not good enough to carry the show. Again, if it wasn't for Hanks I would have gotten up and left by the time the dog started humping the rubber plant.

First, you figure out which is the liar without asking any questions. Say something like, "I'm assuming that you are a guard, but correct me if I am wrong." If they say they aren't a guard, they are a liar. If they say they are or don't say anything, they are the truthful guard. Then, you can proceed to ask them which door is the princess and which one is the dragon.  "I'm assuming you are a guard" this could still be counted as a question. If you simply say "You sir are certinally a guard" then he will simply answer of course I am if he is the truthful guard. If he is the lying guard he with deny it. Your not wrong but, we don't want to take risks with our lives now do we.
